The Sidney High girls evened their record on the year at 1-1 with a 55-45 victory over Lehman in action Saturday night at Sidney in a game highlighted by Sidney senior Celena Taborn scoring the 1,000th point of her career, becoming the seventh girls player in school history to reach that mark.

The game was the season opener for the Lady Cavs.

Sidney got a big game from 6-foot-3 post player Celena Taborn, and also tossed in six three-pointers — four by Carrie Nuss — to offset another sub-par night at the free throw line. The Lady Jackets were just 7-for-17 from the line, after going 14-for-27 in Friday night’s loss to Russia.

Sidney led just 14-12 after a quarter, but used a strong second period to take control, outscoring the Lady Cavs 13-6 for a 27-18 lead at the half.

“We struggled taking care of the ball, but we did execute down the stretch and were able to go back to our game plan of getting the ball inside,” said Sidney coach Megan Mummey. “Celena scored her 1000th point midway through the fourth quarter and that gave us a huge spark. I am very proud of Celena. She has really stepped up her game and earned this accomplishment. Also stepping up big for us was Carrie Nuss. When we were struggling at times, Carrie came up big and help us from the outside.”

Taborn finished with 26 points and made it a double-double with 11 rebounds. She also blocked six shots. Nuss added 14, hitting four of her nine three-point attempts.

Nuss got the Lady Jackets off to a good start with two three-pointers in the opening quarter, and Taborn matched her output with six points of her own. Then in the second, Taborn scored eight of Sidney’s 13 points.

For Lehman, Alanna O’Leary led in scoring with 10 and Hannah Fogt added nine. Grace Monnin came up with five steals for the Lady Cavs.
